The Mike Jones spirit will always be alive in rap. The latest iteration comes courtesy of rap duo A.Dd+, who hail from Dallas. Rapping over hypnotic and twinkly production from DJ Burn One, Slim Gravy and Paris Pershun describe their journeys and their initial doubters, who are conveniently coming around at the same time they are blowing up. It’s a familiar story in rap and in the arts in general, but A.Dd+ breathe some new life into it. More than just observing how people have changed, they command these shifty folks to fuck off. They also use their flows to bring out the nuances of the beat. Listen below.
And check out some of their older stuff, like this song which plays with the melody of Britney Spears‘ “Toxic.”
